KG Newman [Poetry]


Roaming Memory


The wolves returned and so did we —

decimating elk, angering ranchers,

the romantic voters in the city

pre-determining our fate

as we exit metal crates

in a secret spot in the wilderness

to integrate spacetime with


extinction. We may well ignore

the borders given to us.

Bare fangs at the barrels

of our own guns.

Only the months ahead

will tell us of our success:


Innumerable tax reimbursements

or balancing the ecosystem.

Divisive or out of sight,

guests of somewhere

deep in the trees,

sieving the small bits of soul

we believe we have left.
